Buy / Sell TCS share
Shares of TCS, Infosys, Wipro and other major tech giants rose on Thursday, ahead of the release of Accenture's financial results. The IT consulting firm raised its full-year revenue growth guidance to 25.5-26.5 percent.
TCS, Infosys and Wipro shares closed 1-3 percent higher.
The upwards revision in guidance comes at a time when Indian IT companies — including the likes of TCS, Wipro, Infosys, HCL Technologies and Tech Mahindra — are struggling against shrinking margin despite healthy demand.
In March, Accenture had adjusted its revenue growth guidance to 24-26 percent on a year-on-year basis in the second quarter of its financial year from 19-22 percent.
